Coming home in the yellow folder is a snack form.  We are asking for either HEALTHY shelf-stable snack items or a donation of $8 or $15 to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.  Please look for the form. 
A huge thank you to all who are helping us comply with mandates surrounding the Corona Virus. It is very difficult since many symptoms of this virus are similar to a hundred typical children's symptoms we see all the time. Please know that we truly appreciate the honesty of families while we try to keep everyone safe.

An important mandate which we have been given is in regards to isolation & quarantine.  If a child has symptoms of Covid-19, they automatically are asked to isolate for 10 days unless they are able to either 1.obtain a negative Covid test and alternative diagnosis or 2. a doctor is able to provide an alternative diagnosis and symptoms have resolved significantly. The symptom list is on the clip board which is signed each morning.  When you sign your child in you are attesting to the fact that the child does not have any of those symptoms listed and has not been exposed to anyone with Covid-19.  Quarantine is for anyone who has had an exposure or suspected exposure. For an exposure case, students must be away from school 14 days.  There are specific details surrounding exposure, isolation and quarantine that will vary based on each case.  If your child typically has asthma symptoms, allergy symptoms or other concerns which mimic Covid symptoms please call the office when symptoms arise so that we can talk through the procedure!
